I also looked at my national insurance contributions. They used to send me letters saying, "Pay (whatever amount) for national insurance". I'd get these letters every three months. But I haven't got them for years so I thought that I just stopped paying national insurance.
Not so. There's a website you can go to that shows you how many years you've paid national insurance. I have full years of payment for every year except the first two years I was here. I wasn't working enough then.
And you need 10 years of full payment to get a pension. You need 35 years for the full pension, which I could still do as long as I keep working every year. There's a few years where I could take off so it's not too tight. I thought that because I started working here when I was like 30, I probably wouldn't be eligible for the full pension. Not so.
Man, I can't wait for that £168/week when I'm 68 years old. Or if I stopped working right now, I'd get about £100/week when I'm 68. Sweet.
It's not something that I care about. Where are the starving pensioners? I don't see any. They all seem to be doing alright to me. You think they all carefully planned for retirement? Of course not.
Anyway, 68, who cares? I'd be surprised if I'm still alive. Even if I am, I'd surely not still be in the UK. I wonder if I still have anything in the US. Even if I do, I bet they'd probably take it because of student loan. The US is ruled by such scumbags that they'll take your pension if you owe student loans. Unbelievable shit.
Hey, new Tinder match. B, 35, painfully unattractive. She likes a few normal things. Also likes UFC. Money isn't important to her. This is an unmatch from me, dawg.
